Pat Chambers received the B.Sc degree in Physics and Physics Technology Degree from Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT), Ireland, in 2002 and the PhD degree in Communications from DIT in 2008. From Jan. 2009 to Dec. 2010, he worked as a post-doctoral researcher with Université catholique de Louvain (UCL), Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium. Since July 2011, he has been a Research Associate for the UK-China Science Bridges: R&D on 4G Wireless Mobile Communications project at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland.
